I would say its smart politics. Mukherjee recognised this from the begnning and hence he was conciliatory to Mamatdi even when the rest of the Congressmen were coming down hard on Mamta.
If TC goes out of UPA, then SP will have the same influence as TC has right now and Sonia Gandhi and Co. are in no mood to allow that to happen. Keeping TC in the UPA indirectly diminishes the SP influence on Congress.
Momota didi is definitely a brave and selfless lady who has fought and vanquished the communists in WB and nurtured and brought up TMC. Mullayam OTOH is a shrewd and slippery customer who does not keep his word. Momota didi has my sympathies. Of course, unless she ups her administration and shows some results, commies and congies are waiting in the wings in WB!
